Commey opponent named for March 19, Gamgebeli over eight
Richard Commey (23-0, 21 KOs) is back in action on Saturday night against Anzor Gamgebeli (27-13-3, 12 KOs) in an eight-round contest at the Albertslund Musikteatret in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Ghanaian lightweight star, who is mandatory challenger for the IBF World title, has opted to take a tune up bout ahead of his soon-to-be-scheduled fight with the reigning IBF Champion Rances Barthelemy.
‘’I’m really looking forward to coming back to Copenhagen and putting on a show for the Danish fans,’’ said Commey.
‘’This is an important fight for me as I need to stay active. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to challenge for the World title, and I want to make sure I have no ring rust and I’m in the best possible shape, both physically and mentally.’’
Despite having a World title fight on the horizon, the 29 year-old from Accra says there will be no complacency in his performance.
‘’I will treat Gamgebeli no different from my previous opponents,’’ he said. ‘’I respect him and I will be doing utmost to win in fine fashion. I will not be complacent and I will not be taking him for granted, for Team RC, it’s business as usual!’’
Commey fights on the undercard of Micki Nielsen’s WBC International Cruiserweight title defence against former World title challenger Mirko Larghetti. Tickets are available online via www.billetlugen.dk or by calling (+45) 70 263 267.
